Curatorial Statement

The Caribbean is coming to Toronto as an explosion of talent in images and sound. Rejecting "sun, sand and surf," filmmakers from the region and its diaspora Europe, North America, Africa and India are hoisting up the camera as a powerful weapon for the expression of their unique voices. They include established and emerging filmmakers from the French, Dutch, Spanish and English territories; from every ethnic group and combination of ethnicities, driven by the force of mixed heritages, fierce in the determination to tell the stories of our diverse experiences and common ancestry, in our own words, images and languages, using any means available and necessary. We are proud to be Caribbean.
